August Stash Report and Goals Update

August was a very good month for stash usage. But do you think I could refrain from any fabric purchases for one measly little month?! Who are we kidding. I needed a certain color of solid for a block contest submission, and while I was getting it a half yard of this nice low volume neutral jumped into my cart.
Low Volume Neutral

So, here are the stash stats for August:
IN: 0.75
OUT: 11.975
(Pillowcase for camp - 1-1/8;  Binding for Bumpity Blue - 3/8 yard;  Replacement baby quilt top & back, 3.6 yds;  Julie's Bee blocks - 1/8 yd;  MQU block - 1/4;  Striped binding for Ugly Baby Quilt, - 3/8;  30-Something top, 6-1/8 yds)

YTD IN: 137.75 yards
YTD OUT: 111 yards
YTD Net Change: 26.75 yards into the stash

Goals Update:
1. Quilt & finish girl charity quilt. Done.
2. Finish special baby quilt. Finished - now called the ugly baby quilt. Also made & finished an entirely new cute baby quilt because the ugly baby quilt is not gift-worthy.

4. Keep up with bee blocks. Done.
5. Work on CSQ 30-Something challenge, due Oct.21. Top finished.

  1. I like how you post your sewing goals...something I am going to start doing too.

  2. Good work on your goals. I like the new baby quilt much better than the ugly one. Sometimes we try too hard.

  3. Good luck with your contest entry - kudos on accomplishing so many of your goals.
